, the note mitt romney hit was a heck of a lot worse than that. the republican nominee out of nowhere told a crowd of supporters some unexpected information about auto jobs in nearby toledo, ohio. >> i saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep, now on the other hand by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. i will fight for every good job in america and i'm going to fight to make sure trade is fair. if it's fair, america will win. >> moving all production to china. folks, this is a gigantic lie. earlier this week, chrysler's parent company announced that it is in talks to increase operations throughout the entire world. now as bloomberg news reported chrysler referred to adding jeep production sites rather than shifting output from north america to china. translation, chrysler is so flushed with cash, it's looking to expand its operations to other countries, including the world's largest customer, and that would be china. now chrysler's success is no smoke screen whatsoever. today the company announced 1100 new jobs at its jeep assembly

that obama keeps talking about. that's what mitt romney and republicans have been saying and i think women are starting to believe it. >> bill: so are you saying that women's health care that abortion, that contraception, that child care, those are all distractions? >> that's not what i'm saying. that's what the [ inaudible ] are saying. every time one of those issues is brought up, they don't want to answer it the question you see it with mitt romney his campaign comes back and says don't even worry about his birth control views, he wants employers to decide. but this is not a big deal women care about the economy. and they said that with abortion, they have tried to gloss over his running mate's more extreme abortion position by saying women don't care about this, and what i'm saying is it must be working because women are slowly crawling back over towards myth -- >> bill: towards mitt romney and i know you are reporting on what we have been told that the polls show. i find that absolutely impossible to believe, because i think american women are smarter than tha
know a lot of republicans had hoped governor romney wouldn't have to be spending time in florida or virginia at this point. he could be focusing more on ohio and the pickup states. president obama, that map is a little bit misleading. where he's really spending all of his time in the last three days is in wisconsin, in iowa, and in ohio. >> can he win with wisconsin, iowa, virginia, and florida? >> clearly, he will win with all those. he could win without some of those things as long as he holds onto wisconsin and iowa he could lose a bunch of other states. that's his firewall. he's spending a bunch of time in the firewall states like nevada and wisconsin and iowa. that's the way that he holds on even if romney somehow runs the table in florida, virginia, and ohio. if he can hold those other states, he can still win. >> chuck, you go along with that? >> i do. >> we need virginia and florida? >> i have been trying -- the sunday romney schedule had been in the dark. they had set it up. here is the sunday schedule. we just got it. iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia. now -- >> pe
vote. one thing that i will say about the romney campaign, the republicans more in general they learned from their mistakes four years ago. they've been out since may you know gathering data, trying to connect with people. they boast their door-knocking operation although it's hard to quantify how many doors you've actually knocked on. they say they've knocked on over 1 million to 2 million doors in this cycle. it will be interesting to see what the final tally. it's important to note that this weekend you can go and vote in person at the board of elections. this is something that the democrats, the obama campaign fought for heavily. they sued the state of ohio to reopen this window that was available in 2008. it was closed last year, and now it's back open, you're seeing a lot of activity surrounding a lot of local churches labor groups driving people to vote in person. >> jennifer: we're also watching the backlash from the jeep ad which the cleveland dealer was admonishing governor romney about. that's henry gomez from the cleveland. the president won the rocky mountain state in 2008.
with senators from four key swing states. republican rob portman of ohio, who played president romney in the debate represent and 18 electoral votes are in play en a state obama won in '08, by 4.6 points and now leads 2.3 points in the latest real clear politics average of recent polls and republican ron johnson of wisconsin, 10 electoral votes at stake and obama won by almost 14 points, last time, and, is now leading by 2.3. and democrat mark wa of virginia, obama won its 13 electoral votes by 6 points, four years ago and now is tied with romney. and, democrat mark udall of colorado, obama won the 9 electoral votes last time by nine points and the race there is now dead even. senator portman, let's start with the state i guess most people think may decide the race, that is ohio. the obama camp says they have the big edge in early voting in your state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country, and the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris, first of all, you mentioned the real clear politics average in ohio, 2.3%, in the president's favor and now it is 1.9%
to the other this week. one of romney's supporters, republican governor chris christie, applauding the president. >> i'll reach out to both sides of the aisle. i'll reach across the aisle in washington. i'll endeavor to find those good men and women on both sides of the aisle. >> reporter: governor romney in new hampshire today. he'll be here on the eve of the election. the president here tomorrow. they are taking those four electoral votes very seriously. particularly in a race, as you know, is a dead-heat as we head into election day. >> hard to believe, only three days left. david, thank you. >>> joining us now for more on this is abc political consultant matthew dowd. good morning, matt. >> good morning. >> so curious to know who has the edge on tuesday? >> this marathon that has gone on 700 days. everybody is ready for this thing. the candidates are exhausted. i think in the aftermath of what's gone on this week, there's a little wind behind the sails of the president, at this time. especially in the electoral college. i think he has the advantage right now. >> you think sandy
. republican mitt romney will campaign today out of the storm's path in the battleground state of ohio yesterday offering these words for those in sandy's way. >> i think that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast, and our thoughts and prayers are with the people that find themselves in harm's way. >> what remains to be seen is how this october surprise will impact an election that is now just eight days away with early voting already under way. we want to get straight to the latest update, and for that nbc news meteorologist dillon drier joins me with a look. not much has changed? >> that's unfortunate. it is still a strong category 1 hurricane at this time, and even if it changes into something post-tropical as it makes its way towards the new jersey coastline, this is a strange hybrid between a once tropical system, a hurricane right now, and then transforming and taking on more of the characteristics of a nor'easter. this makes this an unprecedented type of storm. it starts as a hurricane and developing into this nor'easter.
pleasant beach on the jersey shore. coming up, spin game from the republicans. romney's expanding the map, he says, advertising now in michigan and pennsylvania and forcing team obama, the other side, to play defense. from the democrats, romney can't find the votes for the battleground states, so he's throwing wild passes where he can't win. the new polls out today suggest the democrats are right, this is a distraction, not a reality. also, that romney jeep advertisement we told you about yesterday was so dishonest, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just a crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonest, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the side show. joe isuzu is back
even republicans i've talked to in this state have said that mitt romney and ohio -- >> well, republicans feel like they're going after a wider swath of vote erts. they feel like they're going after not just their core, their base, but they're looking at disenchanted obama voters and they say they ever targeted them, they know where they are and they think that gives them the edge. >> and switch and that's what a lot of their advertising has been focused on. but in wisconsin, i don't know, there was just a new state poll by one of the papers in wisconsin that showed obama up by eight. now, that's probably on the high end, but there's not any real concern right now in the obama camp that they're in danger of losing wisconsin. they're sending the president there just to try and nail it down because they don't want to leave any stone unturned. but right now, you get a sense of growing confidence in the obama camp. they feel like they're going to be okay. >> well, and here is the reason why. of all these battleground states, the president needs to win just three in order to win a
of leaders around the state to were working very hard for mitt romney in the republican team right now. we have nine offices around the state. we have made three times as many phone calls and six times as many doors be a knock on in 2012 than we did in 2008. we are undergoing extremely voter contact. we have made over 1 million unique boater contract -- context in new hampshire. these are all grass roots that we run. we're calling our friends and neighbors and asking for the vote. in democratic calller, you're up. >> thank you for taking my call. i've a question and comment. my comments will be i think everyone is being very unfair to the way president obama handled libya that has not been investigated fully. no one speaks about the intelligent plunder the republicans did that put us into war with iraq, lost 2000 american soldiers, and the answer was we had poor intelligence. my question is, why should anyone believe mitt romney would be good at creating jobs while he was 48 in job creation massachusetts? i will take the second question first. mitt romney has created jobs. he is in the mid
remarks he made about disaster relief funding. at a republican primary debate last year romney down played the federal government's role in disaster response. >> every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states that's the right direction. it can go further and send it back to the private sector that's even better. >> with the campaign in its final days and superstorm sandy dominating the headlines, it could pounce for the president's campaign. >> it's tailor made for a campaign ad even though politics have been off the table the last several days i wouldn't be surprised to see an outside group on the democratic side come out and say if not directly the obama campaign itself. >> on wednesday romney issue ad statement in which he said fema played a key role during times of disaster. as president i will ensure fema has the funding it need to fulfill its mission while directing maximum resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the in
, someone who is a republican, former republican governor, and certainly a surrogate for the romney campaign, but harsh words, especially given what the president was doing yesterday. >> yeah, i think that's true. and governor bush has not been the most hot eyed partisan among significant republican players in the past. this that is all hands on deck moment where surrogates are asked to do this kind of stuff. i thought the most unhelpful thing from the romney standpoint in that common, which not the harshness in terms of president obama you want to talk about george w. bush? that really for swing voters, undecided voters you want the image -- >> to remind them of hurricane katrina, bush? >> it's not effective surrogacy, apart -- forget about the harshness. >> romney was nastier to bush in the debate than obama was. >> by the way, jeb bush, the whole uniting at this time? jeb bush, maybe one of his -- >> craig fugate a republican would not work for george w. bush after katrina. but when obama called him he said yes because they were serious about professionalizing -- >> there's the door. >> t

side and then on the republican side you have mitt romney collecting rice crispies for people -- i don't know if you read the statement that red cross put out, after it reluctantly collected all of the stuff he purchased in ohio but it basically said something along the lines of we thank the romney campaign with all of the crap they gave us. if you would like to help us like the obama campaign please second money. >> stephanie: yeah it's the one time he can't do the republican destruction thing because this is a real emergency. >> that's what mitt romney's friends at the daily caller are working on doing for them is getting the politics back on schedule here. >> stephanie: right. let's dive into the right-wing world. charles hurt. >> the one part of the economy that the president has sort of out toed is the massive bailout of the auto industry and if you listen to the ad of romney in ohio, it almost sounds like president obama is running for president of the auto industry as opposed to president of the united states. >> what? >> stephanie: hum. >> that is ana
.8% for each ticket. how does the romney camp close strong and bring home the commonwealth for republicans? >> i do appreciate governor romney calling yesterday and checking on the weather situation and agreeing to cancel three events today. the president tomorrow as well. i think it is probably a dead heat but momentum clearly moving towards governor romney and it is because the issues really matter to virginia voters are in romney's favor. the jobs picture. governor romney has a plan. the president presided over 43 months of 8% unemployment. the crushing debt that is going to get worse under the president. governor romney has a plan. defense cuts which hurt our state badly, shannon and leave our military less prepared. 200,000 jobs being lost. governor romney says he will reverse that. the president has been a bistander and won't lead. people concerned about benghazi with the news coming out that the president said he he gave an order for things to be taken care of and maximum resources applied and secretary panetta don't follow through. why weren't we prepared and why are four americans
of the romney campaign there in fort worth? >> i see that the republicans handled the -- handled their candidate, mitt romney, and i see that they're orchestrated, as far as all of his surrogate that have negative comments and responses by the republican party. >> we're going to leave it there. molly ball of the atlantic, go ahead. >> well, i don't think we should read too much into the different form that these campaigns have taken. part of the reason that the republican national committee is handling the ground game for romney is that the republican primary took quite a while to decide, and so they were able to start building this organization back in march, before romney was the nominee and try to catch up with the obama campaign that's been building this organization for six years. i do think the republicans are at a disadvantage because they've had less time, but if they had waited until romney sewed up the nomination around late april, or even until the convention when he official my received the nomination, they would have been at a much more severe disadvantage. these organizations take
" hasn't endorsed a republican since 1972 richard nixon, they endorsed romney, saying that he offers a fresh economic vision. it said that barack obama rocketed to the presidency from relative obscurity with a theme of hope and change. a different reality has marked his presidency. his record on the economy the past four years does not suggest that he would lead in the direction the nation must go in the next four years. how much does this hurt? >> they endorsed romney in the primary. this isn't much a surprise. it was surprising to read that editorial, but it wasn't based in reality. not just in the president's record but in mitt romney's record. it said that romney would reach across the aisle, but it would be the exact opposite. over the course of running for president over the last six years, he's never once stood up to the far extreme right wing. just this past week, we saw it, when he wouldn't take down his ad for richard mourdock. he's not willing to stand up when it matters. so, the fact that he's going to bring people together is just nonsense. in terms of newspaper endorsem
in, and you're also seeing record visits by the republican candidate, mitt romney, as well as his running mate, paul ryan. host: as far as the ground game for republicans in the state, what do you need to have a place in the state of colorado? guest: the ground game, a typically, you start building it about six months out from the election. clearly, our candidates, mitt romney was still engaged in a primary fight, but they have quickly made up a lot of the ground. you need to have thousands of volunteers in place dispersed among -- along the i 25 corridor and in the pocket communities along the western slope of the mounds. four years ago, hats off to the obama campaign. if they did a tremendous job and had a lot of enthusiasm. but this year, that has been negated in the last couple of months by the republicans. host: where do they feel they can get ahead? early votes? absentee voting? guest: absentee voting, clearly. and right now, the advantage is to the republicans by about 40,000 active voters. right now, you are seeing a disproportionate amount of republicans returning their a
republican party. they will stop at nothing to smear the president. romney supporters are even telling outright lies at campaign events. today, a gop official shouted out that bogus claim that the president is handing out so-called obama phones in order to get votes. >> we've got to drag people to the polls. that's what they are doing. you don't have to offer them cell phones like they are doing but, by golly, take people to the polls. >> it's just not the romney supporters, today the campaign is trying to spook us just in time for halloween and a bag of dirty tricks. joining me now is president of the service union and jamal simmons a. dr simmons, a democratic, strategist. let me start with you, mary kay. are we going to see a lot more of these dirty tricks in the next six days, in your opinion, mary kay? >> yes, we are, for the reason thaw just said. they cannot repeal on voters for the economy that works for everybody. instead, they are going to distract voters by esending out these ridiculous lies and we're not having it. we have a ground game that is going to unite people to exerc
tolerate bureaucrac >> woodruff: meanwhile, republican mitt romney returned to the campaign trail today with three events in florida. the g.o.p. presidential nominee also mentioned the ongoing recovery in the northeast. >> this is... this is quite a time for the country, as you know. we're... we're going through trauma in a major part of the country, a kind of trauma you've experienced here in florida more than once. and... and it's interesting to see how people come together in a circumstance like this. we've seen folks from all over the country step forward and... and offer contributions. >> woodruff: bumps in the recovery were evident in new y late today, where the public, bellevue hospital , started evacuating about 500rk patients because of deteriorating conditions. >> ifill: and for more on fill a short time ago governor cuomo said laguardia area will open for flights tomorrow morning. today's developments, we're joined again tonight by warren levinson of the associated press. he's been making his way around new york city today, and is just back from a trip to the evacuated bellev
celebrity, and they showed the same vote for mitt romney campaign video from the republican convention, but they just changed the name of the event. they called it a storm relief event, instead of calling it a victory rally. the one thing they changed materially about the campaign rally in order to make people call it a storm relief event is that they asked people to bring canned goods and groceries as donations to the red cross. one of the problems with this, as we talked about on last night's show, is that that's not actually the right way to donate to the red cross. i mean, the desire to give groceries and canned goods at the time of a natural disaster comes from the right place, it is a nice impulse, but unless you're specifically requested by relief agencies or public officials to do that, donating canned goods and groceries is just not logistically helpful,s on a large scale and from across country, especially if you are a presidential candidate getting national press, implicitly telling the whole country this is the way to help, this is what everybody ought to be doing. i'm not
romney is going to win 55% in missouri this year. i think any respectable republican who did not put both feet in his mouth would have carried that race. we now think claire mccaskill has a lead to a large enough to survive the romney landslide in missouri. also, there is a libertarian on the ballot there. that percentage will surprise you. that's where a lot of republicans who will not support todd akin and will not support claire mccaskill will go, i think. that should enable claire mccaskill to hold received another six years. host: when you look at virginia, what will you be watching on election night? guest: i want to see -- you always watch the first votes to come in. and it varies from year to year. they come in from different places, so you have to know the history of each city and county and even the precincts, to know the results. i will look at the critical swing counties in northern virginia, loudoun county and prince william county. i will be looking at chesterfield, richmond, enrico. i want to see if he will get over 40%. if he's in the 30's in chesterfield, that's a bad sig
may win a district. but it's a-- s so it's a republican state going in. the irony is for mitt romney, is that john kasich who you saw in the piece, the governor, is extolling all these good news that we just heard. and the romney people don't want to hear that because part of their message is we've got the economic key. and it can't have already happened in ohio under barack obama's watch. >> woodruff: let's broaden it out. you said that you were talking to david about the difference between ohio and the rest of the country, what does it look like across the country right know in the campaign? >> you know, i have read so many very confident people over the last 24 hourx totally confident that obama is going to win or that romney is going to win. i don't think we can know. i think something will happen the last three days, there will be a shift and something will happen. i do think there has been a contrast in how the campaigns are operatng in the last couplef weeks. and romney's trying to go big with big change. paul ryan gave i think quite a good speech on social mobility and povert
, crucial questions. would mitt romney buff the republican party at any time if he were elected president. and secondly, does barack obama have sort of a second wind, a second burst of policy creative. >> woodruff: he did put out this 20 page. >> but that was a rehash statement of his. if you go to what he wrote in 2007, i bet most of those things are in that 2007 book. and so they're fine. you know, community colleges, more math and science teachers and all that stuff. but it's not exactly a huge agenda. so you are a voter. you are trying to imagine what is the next four years going to look like. i think it's very hard because the big questions have been unasked. >> woodruff: well, i guess only ten days to go after this. i was going to ask you about the ground game and all kinds of other things. but this has been better than that, better than the ground game. >> it's important for us to vent emotionally. >> woodruff: mark shields, david brooks, thank you both. there is more politics talk with mark, david, and hari on the "doubleheader", recorded in our newsroom. that will be posted at th
is critical for both. but because of the electoral mass, it's much more so for romney. whose victory may well depend on the state's 18 electoral votes. david cohen is a professor of political skoins at the university of ago ron. >> no republican has ever taken the white house without taking the state of ohio. and only a couple times has a democrat done so. to clearly it is an important state. >> reporter: but also a complex one. the two driving forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing the economic realities of the country and of the state. >> reporter: the city of lord's town is home to a sprawling general motors factory, the area's largest employer. once on the verge of collapse, it's become a
